Subject: STELLAR One of the 10 best shows of all time
Unquestionably one of the top 10 shows EVER played. Likely the best big river I've heard and literally every song is on fire. On the same level as cornell 77 possibly better.

Subject: West High School Auditorium is HUGE
Please don't think The Dead were playing next to a cafeteria. WHS Auditorium is a large hall with a balcony, greenroom-to-stage elevators - the works.The place seat 2,000. That's big. I mean, Harlem's Apollo Theater only holds 1500. How West High School wound up with a classy venue big enough to attract The Dead is baffling but there it is. Dave Brubeck and even Leonard Bernstein have wound up there, probably out of curiosity. The promoter of the concert tossed in a hunting and fishing trip for the band just to sweeten the deal. There's a lot of counter culture types up there, people wanting to leave the US but not keen on learning French. Despite its hippie-ish attitudes - up to an once of weed is legal and two dozen plants is the legal limit - Alaska has quaint habit of electing Republicans. Deadheads who made the trip in 1980 were taken in by locals who admired their determination to make the trip to Alaska. June is a great time up there - we're heading into nonstop sunshine for weeks on end. Me? I went to East Anchorage. So there.

Looks like the boys decided to venture to Alaska, and it sounds like thoes eskimos got their faces stolen! The band played a run in a high school auditorium and one might not expect too much from a show in that setting. It also happens to be 1980, a long overlooked year in the trading world. It just so happenes that there was a killer taper in the audience and he did a fine job in capturing this beautiful night! 14:21 Sugaree opener, Lazy Lightning>Supplication, Feel Like a Stranger, Terrapin, and Playin' in the Band...all killer! This show bops with the energy of a summer/fall '79 show. Great versions of all songs within, and one of my favorite AUDs. It just sounds so good! One hell of a show! Check out the other shows from this run as well!

Man, i gotta tell ya....it is NIIIICE to hear an AUD tape shine like this one...WOW!

I have been collecting and listening to SBD for such a long time now...that i needed to be humbled and awed into the Grateness of a good ol' Audience recoding.

Been a Deadhead since 84, and cant get enough....even in 2008!!!

Long live the Dead!!!!

Subject: Excellent Aud Sound
This show is not spectacular but certainly has a strong set list and fine moments. 3 stars for the show.

The recording, on the other hand, really does sound fantastic. The highs are slightly muffled, but the mids and low end are well-balanced. A GEM of an audience recording! 4 stars for the sound.
